Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has opened the door to moving to the Saudi Pro League in future.

The Belgium international spent the recent campaign on loan with Roma where he scored 21 goals in all competitions.

AC Milan are now interested in landing him on a temporary basis, but the Blues prefer to sanction his sale this summer.

Lukaku currently has a £38 million release clause in his contract and the Blues are reluctant to sell him for anything less.

Amidst this, the former Manchester United man has opened the door for a big-money move to the Saudi Pro League.

He told HLN: "Saudi Arabia wouldn't stop me. The level will only rise there. To a much higher level than many people think."

"More and more footballers will tend to play there. All the major European top clubs know that: Saudi Arabia is coming."

Al-Hilal were eager to sign him during last summer's transfer window and they could make a renewed approach this time.
